    I am getting ready to shoot some pictures for one of my girlfriends best friends so we went out later in the day to see what kindof light works best for her due to the fact her hair is sooo light.. Some feed back about be awesome I have never shot a girl with such blonde hair..

    Sorry to say, but the skin tone is much too orange. If you have them in RAW, you easily set the white balance. Do you have any where we can see her eyes?

    You can correct the white balance in JPEG too, using Levels. Its just easier to shoot in RAW and adjust white balance there. The late day golden sunlight in awesome for portraits, but if you don't fine tune the skin, it can easily turn out too orange-red like this.

    ya try shooting in RAW. the editing process is much nicer.

    Also, tell her to take off the sunglasses...it's hard to be pretty with half your face hiding behind huge sunglasses..

    Yeah towards the end of sunset the lighting really does get very orange, but hey you could always switch to B&W and problem solved.

    Some feedback:
    #1 I like.
    #2 That 3/4 back view is not flattering, it does noting for her figure, mostly because the arm is blocking the arch of her back making her look a bit fatter than she is.
    #3 Too much background and the subject is a bit too far in the corner of the frame.

    #All: Auto white balance by any chance? The white point looks all over the place on these and should probably be locked at something like daylight or they should be equalised afterwards to match a bit more. Maybe a tighter depth of field too, lens aperture permitting of course.

    Disclaimer: These are my opinions and are in no way "right" and definitely not the only way to do this.

    I agree with what Garbz said. Honestly that pose just got me annoyed. You can use it once if it is done right but over and over again I am tired of it. It looks like she thinks she is better then everyone else and when I look at a picture I don't want to feel "smaller"

    Take the glasses off, move the hair from infront of her face, and pull her not pull in her stomach, shes not doing anything for her boobs by trying to push them out.


    Now get out there and do it again :)

    :lol: agreed.

    but they are just a tad boring to me, try a shallower depth of field.

    it looks like you used the AUTO settings... looks like there was not a LOT of light outside, im sure with better lighting and better use of manual settings you can achieve higher quality.
